This quest has a quick guide found here.
It briefly summarises the steps needed to complete the quest.

The mountain Dwarves' home would be an ideal way to get across White Wolf Mountain safely. However, the Dwarves aren't too fond of strangers. They will let you through if you can bring them a trophy. The trophy is the prize for the annual Hemenster fishing competition.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Dwarves can't fish![edit | edit source]

This quest can be started from either side of the White Wolf Mountain.

To start this quest, go to either of the quest start points adjacent to White Wolf Mountain, as shown in the picture. Attempt to walk down the stairs in the building and a nearby dwarf will block you from doing so, saying that the tunnel is only for the use of the Mountain Dwarves.

Ask the dwarf if you could become friends ("If you were my friend I wouldn't mind it" ..."And how am I meant to do that?"). The dwarf will say that he wants you to win the fishing contest in the western town of Hemenster, since the reward for the contest is a coveted gold trophy and dwarves aren't known to be good at angling.

They'll give you a fishing pass for entry into the contest, before promising you access to the tunnel shortcut underneath the mountain, should you manage to be successful.

Help from the champion[edit | edit source]

Items required: A spade

  • (This section is optional and can be skipped if you have a spade.) If you're an Ultimate Ironman, it's unlikely you have a spade. Go back to White Wolf Mountain and cross over to Taverley. Make your way south to Falador. Take the spade from the building with the house icon. Alternatively, buy one from the Ardougne farm shop just south, the Catherby farm shop or pick one up behind Edmond's house in West Ardougne. You could also have a spade stored in one of the tool leprechauns in Kandarin.
  • Stop at Seers' Village and pick up a piece of garlic in the house south-west of the bank. It respawns on a table and it will be needed. You will also need to get 5 coins for Bonzo to allow you to fish. Start heading west toward the north end of McGrubor's Woods. You will need to squeeze through the railing through the northern side since the southern gate is locked.
Note: fairy ring code als will place you in McGrubor's Wood just east of the red vine worms
The red vine is large.

Once inside, beware of level 44 guard dogs, just west of the fairy ring, you will find a red vine - check the vine and collect 3 worms.

Winning the trophy[edit | edit source]

Items required: A fishing pass, fishing rod, garlic, 10 coins, and 3 red vine worms

Exit McGrubor's Wood through the loose railing located northeast of the building in the center. Go south of McGrubor's Wood to Hemenster, located across from the Ranging Guild south of Seers' Village.

Once there show Morris your fishing pass and he will let you in.

Put the garlic into the pipes on the south wall of the north building by the Sinister Stranger. Garlic can be found in the house with a quest symbol and cooking range symbol in the center of Seers' Village. Pay Bonzo the contest fee to start the contest (5 coins). The Sinister Stranger will complain about a horrible smell and you will change places with him.

Fishing next to the pipes.

Fish at the spot by the pipes using the red vine worms. You will catch a giant carp, a unique type of fish that you can't catch normally, and that will be the prize winning fish.

Speak to Bonzo again and hand over the giant carp. You will be announced the winner of the Fishing Competition.

After winning the contest and obtaining your trophy, head back to the quest starting point on either side of the mountain and give the dwarf your trophy.

Congratulations! Quest complete!
